Finkenauer Makes Closing Argument in New Ad: “Yes, This is Personal”

Abby Finkenauer’s campaign today released a new television advertisement, entitled “Personal.” The ad can be viewed here, and began airing yesterday, October 30, in the Cedar Rapids market. The ad began airing in the Des Moines market last week.

 

In her closing argument of the campaign, Finkenauer discusses how she will fight to protect Social Security and Medicare, and people with pre-existing conditions. In the ad, she calls out Rod Blum for endangering programs that Iowans count on with his reckless votes.

“You work hard, that should be enough. The Social Security and Medicare you earn should be secure. And you shouldn’t have to go bankrupt if you get sick,” said Abby Finkenauer. “But Rod Blum isn’t fighting for us. I will always have your back.”

A full transcript of the ad is below:

I’m Abby Finkenauer and I approve this message to every Iowan Rod Blum has forgotten. You work hard, that should be enough. The Social Security and Medicare you earn should be secure. And you shouldn’t have to go bankrupt if you get sick. But Rod Blum isn’t fighting for us. I will always have your back. Because this is where I come from. You are who I fight for. These are the values we share. And, yes, this is personal.
